Ééé pessoal! O processo realmente mudou!
Tá lá no site do CIC informando que o governo poderá ser muito mais flexível para escolher os novos imigrantes.
A princípio, a intenção é colocar os profissionais mais qualificados na frente da fila. E os escritórios terão automia para avaliar os processos.
Relembro que isto somente afeta quem deu entrada no processo em março.
Já tem uma lista de FAQ, é só acessar http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/department/laws-policy/irpa.asp
É, e agora josé?! É esperar a resposta da Maria João e, dependendo, esquecer todas as estatísticas sobre o tempo de processo e aguardar o que vem por aí!
Reducing Canada’s immigration backlog
Canada needs a more responsive immigration system where we reduce wait times so that families are reunited faster and skilled workers arrive sooner. That’s why, on March 14, the Government of Canada proposed changes to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.
The changes mean that those who submitted an application before February 27, 2008, would continue to be processed under the current system. However, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) would have greater flexibility in processing new applications, especially from skilled workers. Anyone would still be able to apply, but CIC would no longer be required to process all new skilled worker applications.
Under the proposed changes, the Minister would have the authority to issue instructions to immigration officers on the processing of applications, including in relation to the jobs available in Canada, so that people with those skills and experience can be brought to Canada more quickly. However, as is the case now, the decisions on individual applications would still be made by CIC immigration officers. The Minister cannot reverse these decisions.
The instructions would be made public, and would reflect commitments to provinces and territories. They would be published in the Canada Gazette, reported in the Department’s annual report to Parliament and posted on CIC’s website.
